Operation Helping Hand

Operation Helping Hand, a project of the Tampa Chapter of Military Officers Association of America (MOAA), is an organization that assists families of seriously wounded active military personnel during hospital stays in the Tampa Bay area.

Many families travel from all over the country to be by their loved ones during this critical time of treatment. Assistance from the public and business community is definitely needed to help these families.

Following is a short list of items that are needed:

  • Rental or leased cars
  • Bus or taxi fare coupons
  • Cell phones or phone cards
  • Gasoline coupons
  • Amusement park, movie, dinner tickets
  • Restaurant or food market gift certificates
  • Any comfort or recreation items that will make their stay here in Tampa more enjoyable, or checks for the purchase of needed items
